‘Sacred Sound’ is found within all world cultures and spiritual traditions. 

It is the basis of music’s ability to calm, awaken, heal, balance and energize the human spirit. 

It is a spiritual language (a sound matrix) that is intrinsically understood by all sentient beings and that is experienced universally in therapeutic terms.

Gong Bath™ tour honoring the Divine Feminine ‘Continues’

A ‘Gong Bath™’ is an expression of ‘Sacred Sound’ which is constructed of sound frequencies, harmonics and overtones rooted in Buddhist teachings and practice techniques. It is a powerful vibrational journey which positively affect emotional balance, cellular healing and spiritual awareness. An alchemy of eastern philosophy, bio-energetics and quantum science it is a most powerful healing modality. Within every ‘Bath’ each participant is bathed with rhythms, tonalities and multi-tonal octaves that are naturally revitalizing, stress reducing and profoundly healing physically, mentally and spiritually.

Presenter: Richard Rudis, (Karma Sonam Dorje), has studied Eastern philosophy, principally Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist practice, for thirty years. He was granted refuge in the Buddha from His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa while in Tibet in 1996 and has been teaching Buddhist Dharma via ‘Vibrational Sound Healing Workshops’ since 1988. He is a published writer, musician and lecturer on the subject of sacred sound healing and how it is echoed within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and current scientific understanding.

Carefully designed vibrational constructs are used to further entice the brain into Alpha/Theta/Delta wave-scapes of creativity, relaxation and enrichment.  A sound healing pioneer with thirty years of Buddhist scholarship, his extensive collaboration with other sound healing researchers and studies in Eastern energy healing have resulted in the development of a unique sacred sound healing techniques known as a 'Gong Bath™, holding the trade mark since 2008.
